As the saying goes, “You can’t pour from an empty cup.” As mothers, spouses, and entrepreneurs it is important to find time just for ourselves. Much of our days (if not every single second) is spent taking care of other people or doing things for other people. Rarely do we take the time to look inwards, find some relaxation, and truly reflect on our various roles. A women’s retreat like the one from Vaera Journeys can not only provide time to yourself to recharge but also a time to learn and reflect with like-minded women.
What is Vaera Journeys?
Vaera Journeys offers an experience like no other for those who wear many hats. Travel is the backbone of Vaera Journeys, as their retreats take place in destinations that not only are far from home but offer the relaxation and seclusion their participants desire. They inspire the small group of women- ten maximum- to take their creative and professional lives to the next level.
The retreat offers thoughtful discussions and workshops that promote inclusion and collaboration for each woman’s “Purpose Project” or the goal in which they set forth at the beginning of the retreat.
Vaera Journeys was created when owner, Meagan Drillinger, found herself discussing with a childhood friend how to take their careers to the next level. This deep discussion was held high in the mountains of the Catskills, where there were no distractions or limitations to their talk. Meagan realized that travel offers a unique perspective to women who want to grow and advance their careers. Now Vaera Journeys does just that- it offers a women’s retreat where entrepreneurs can connect and network with like-minded women, learn from already successful entrepreneurs, and soak up a foreign culture.
Who Should Go on a Vaera Journeys Women’s Retreat?

Motivated women, whether they are already implanted in their professional career or just starting out, are welcome to join. Vaera Journeys keeps each retreat small with only 10 attendees.
What Will You Learn?
Vaera Journeys program is made up of discussions from successful professionals, workshops, and collaborations. You will learn a variety of knowledge and skills which is largely dependent on the knowledge and skills of other entrepreneurs attending. One-on-one coaching, three Mastermind Sessions, and workshops make up the majority of your retreat with Vaera Journeys.
Where are Vaera Journeys Retreats held?
